Tour description provided by Viator
Discover Shanghai’s market culture on this guided tour of one of the city’s first and largest wet markets. With the help of your expert local guide, avoid confusion and navigate your way easily through the market’s various aisles. Your guide will also assist you in talking to the vendors and learning about everything related to Chinese food and market culture. As one of the few areas in Shanghai nearly untouched by tourism and industrial development, this market will surely be a highlight to your visit to the city.
This small-group tour operates with a maximum of 10 people, ensuring you'll receive personal attention from your guide.
Shanghai is known not only for its popular tourist attractions like the Bund and Yuyuan Garden, but it also has a vibrant community separate from the commercial and business areas of the city. Visit an authentic, hidden, open-air farmers’ market in Shanghai. With your experienced local guide, spend two hours walking around the market to see what local vendors sell on a daily basis – you may even learn a bargaining trick or two!
Discover what fruits are in season while walking through the vast area selling abundant produce. In some sections, see live animals like poultry, frogs, snakes and eel. Walk to the meat and fish departments to see the vast arrays of pork, beef and several types of fish. Other goods include different spices, rice, kitchenware, tea and much more. If you happen to walk by a vendor selling century egg (a duck, chicken or quail egg preserved for several weeks to months), don’t miss your chance to try out (own expense) this popular local Chinese delicacy!
Your knowledgeable tour guide, a Shanghai local, has over five years of experience in leading tours all over the city. Whether you choose to purchase any of the fresh goods or simply listen to your guide's stories and anecdotes, you will surely enjoy this Shanghai market experience.
